[R] bivariate kernel density estimates at point locations ( r ather than at grid locations)

You can try `locfit', though it does local likelihood, rather than
garden-variety kernel density estimation.  Here's an example:

den.fit <- locfit(~ x1 + x2, data=cltrain)
predict(den.fit, newdata=cltrain)
